Harjaap earned his undergraduate degree in the interdisciplinary program of Law and Society from York University, where he learned to critically analyze issues related to culture, politics, economy, and the law. He later obtained his Juris Doctor from Queen’s University.

In law school, Harjaap worked with Pro Bono Students Canada for two consecutive years assisting marginally housed individuals in obtaining government identification, and advising prisoner’s on their dietary rights and legal remedies. He also co-founded the Queen’s Policy and Law Club, and collaborated with his peers in the Conflict Analytics Lab to create new legal technology. While working for the Queen’s Prison Law Clinic, Harjaap developed his advocacy skills providing legal representation to vulnerable inmate populations before specialized tribunals in federal penitentiaries.

In his third year of law school, Harjaap pursued his interest in business law and joined the Queen’s Business Law Clinic where he helped new start-ups and small businesses on various corporate matters. In 2022, he and his partner competed in the national Immigration and Refugee Law Moot.

Prior to law school, Harjaap was an entrepreneur having owned his own professional dance organization. He was also greatly involved in the community, volunteering for numerous not-for-profits such as SickKids, and even co-founded his own charitable organization aimed at providing relief for the homeless.

When he isn’t working Harjaap enjoys going to the gym, playing sports, and spending time with his dog Simba.
